The New Efficiency - Minimize extra inning games

While looking at team pitching stats, I was struck by the Bucs' low innings total compared to other teams due to the small number of extra inning games we've played this year. 3 games for a total of 5 extra innings (we won all 3). By comparison, my count for the Nats was 15 games and 31 extra innings. I'm guessing the difference is about the equivalent of 1/2 of a reliever over a full season. Maybe has helped our bullpen from getting burned out. Another issue is whether one would expect this statistical anomaly to even out somewhat over the remainder of the season? Are extra inning games completely subject to randomness or a function of some variable that can be forecasted with probability? Wonder what the record is for fewest extra innings in a season by a team?
